Don't be afraid to stumble

In her May 10 commencement address, Kathi Goertzen ('90 Comm.) provided words of advice to new graduates of Washington State University's College of Liberal Arts.

"As you go out into the world and pursue your careers or the next step in your lives, don't worry when you stumble. Just remember that success is really nothing more than a succession of failures."

The news anchor for Seattle's KOMO-TV added, "Believe in something larger than yourself and get involved in some of the big issues of your time. . . . Give back. Serving the community is an honor. It's a privilege."

Some 2,250 students-2,000 undergraduates and 250 graduate and professional-took part in three 2003 commencement ceremonies in the Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum.
